Talking on the Engadget Show, Lionhead boss man Peter Molyneux has revealed that Fable III will not include Kinect functionality upon release.
He also subsequently told Joystiq that there may be some form of Kinect content available as a future update post-launch and that the Kinect-compatible elements initially built for the game just simply weren't up to scratch, and therefore consequently scrapped.
Microsoft meanwhile, were apparently unaware of Molyneux statements, but reiterated that he is still a strong supporter of Kinect and the hardware will still play a role in Fable III at some point. What that role might be however is under wraps and cannot be discussed "at this time".
Fable III is due for release on October 26th, 2010 in the US and October 29th, 2010 in the UK and Europe.
